Breakfast Pizza

1 lb. sausage
1 med. potato, cut into small cubes
1 T finely chopped onion
1 T finely chopped bell peppers
1 (8 oz.) pkg crescent roll (the kind that isn't separated)
4 eggs
1/2 cup shredded cheese
salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Crumble and brown the sausage. Remove from the pan. Add the potatoes, onions and peppers to the same pan and saute until the potatoes are almost done. You want a little firmness because they will continue cooking while baking. Unroll the crescent and press into a 9 x 13 baking dish sprayed with non-stick spray ,bringing the edges of the crescent up about 1/2" around the sides of the dish. Lightly beat the eggs and pour over the crescent. Add salt pepper. Evenly top with the sausage, potatoes, onions and peppers. Cover with cheese. Bake 20 minutes or until the eggs are set. Serves 6.

When selecting the sausage, I like to get a good brand that is lean and cooks up with very little grease. I also use the hot flavor. The hot flavor tones down when the other ingredients are added. For changes - lean bacon, fried and crumbled. I you use bacon or even sausage that has a lot of grease, pour it out of the pan before you saute the onions and peppers. You don't want them greasy. You could add mushrooms or use ham as your meat. When I served this to my Food Testers I served it with sour cream on the side. Everyone liked the added flavor.
